GeorgiaTechIOT.png Campus Array Node and Array of Things Network Dual Deployment
The Project entails the dual deployment of Argonne National Labs’ Array of Things (AoT, v.2) and Georgia Tech Research Institute’s Campus Array Node (CAN, v.1). In combination, these two sensor networks will aid multi-modal transit from the perspective of both operators and users.

Partnering with the City of Atlanta, Georgia Tech Research Institute, and Argonne National Labs, and focusing on issues related to multi-modal transit, the Project focuses on the on-the-ground interoperation of two Internet of Things systems—AoT focused on environmental sensing and CAN focused on traffic/public safety monitoring—and how to display real-time data for public transit operators, pedestrians, and officials in meaningful ways that inform efficient, effective, and comfortable use of various mobility options.

From the engineering and infrastructural considerations to the political and community issues, the Project is a case study of a cyber-physical system that will result in a model of how to proceed with issues of interoperable Internet of Things systems, from technical standards to community engagement to areas of future work.

The scope of this Blueprint will be on the IoT networks themselves – the physical and logical layers, not necessarily the software applications and data generated therefrom.

To this end, this Blueprint employs the following nomenclature:

Municipal IoT Network: Network-connected devices, installed in a networked system of protocols, wired and/or wireless communications technologies, computer servers and software, used by governmental entities.

Network-connected Devices: Sensors, actuators, connected vehicles; energy usage monitoring sensors; physical access control security systems and lighting; utility control and metering systems; intelligent traffic monitoring and management; public safety sensors (gunshot detection, cameras, bike lane monitoring); street light sensors; etc.

The Figure below provides a mental map for understanding the basic outline of a Municipal IoT network. These networks are, essentially, cyber-physical systems that underpin the various domain-specific applications and outcomes that Smart Communities hope to achieve, such as improved Public Safety, Transportation, Broadband, Economic Development, etc.

Mental Map of a Municipal IoT Network consisting of: IoT Devices, a Wi-Fi Gateway, Communications Lines (i.e., fiber optics and/or the Internet itself), and a Server or Cloud Hosted Computer Controller

Section 1: Impacts of IoT to Municipal Government and is a generalized discussion of six ways IoT networks will change government operations in the future. Areas as diverse and varies as governmental service delivery, government operating costs, outcomes in local economies, environmental sustainability, and digital and social equity all may be affected by improvements in technology that will stem from IoT and Smart Communities. This section attempts to answer the fundamental questions: Why should government officials care about IoT and why does this matter?

Section 2: Considerations for Deploying Municipal IoT Networks examines the models that local governments have considered for IoT networks deployments. These models generally fall into one of two categories: 1) government agencies build and maintain their own IoT networks and services; and 2) cellular and telecommunications firms build and maintain networks that government agencies can subscribe to as-a-service (in a manner similar to how we subscribe to cellular phone service). We explore these as well as additional models, such as public-private partnerships. Security, the concept of “regionalization”, interoperability, and civic engagement are additional considerations discussed.

Section 3: The Current State of Municipal IoT presents research findings developed for this report, derived from an online survey conducted in January 2019. A key takeaway from the survey is support for the notion that the Municipal IoT is still in the “early adopter” stage and some years out from reaching maturity.

Section 4: Case Study Summary Findings & Discussion also presents firsthand research developed for this report: case studies of local government leaders who have deployed IoT networks in their communities, from the cities of San Diego, CA; San Leandro, CA; Calgary, AB Canada; and the County of San Mateo, CA. These structured interviews provide a rich source of qualitative data and uncover important lessons for all Municipal IoT deployments. (All interviewees have graciously agreed to share their stories on record.)

The next two sections are comprised of in-depth technical, hands-on guides intended to inform and guide local government decision makers, officials, staff, and others with an interest in municipal IoT networks.

Section 5: A Practical Guide to Deploying Municipal IoT Networks is a hands-on, systematic walkthrough to assess IoT networks for government agencies and contains a wealth of managerial and technical information.

Section 6: A Practical Guide to IoT Cybersecurity and Privacy guides decision makers through the complex but critical areas of cybersecurity and privacy.

Section 7: Full Case Study Reports provides the full case study reports, written for this Blueprint, covering each city and project in detail.
